“What a great find. Delightful setting and provided a great retreat for my business trip to Ayrshire. Will definitely be back, but this time for a holiday and to explore the area.” Dr Leigh Fish, Nottingham
“Dear Chris and Susan, Thank you for looking after us. What an amazing place! We loved the enclosed garden and for Anna to play outside safely was a real bonus. The evening river walks were lovely.” Peter, Steph and Anna, Dalkeith
“Susan, a huge thank you from both of us. We had a lovely week. The Bothy was so quiet and comfortable. What a fab location and we loved the wildlife, especially the pheasants.” Ray and Jean, Newcastle
“Although we only stayed for one night en-route to Oban, thanks for a delightful evening. Sitting outside with a glass of wine was lovely and your local knowledge of the area and tips were really insightful”.. John, Emma and baby Jack.

“We had a very good time at Chris’s cottage. The cottage is situated next to Chris’s main home who is very discreet. The cottage enjoys its own garden and it is absolutely independent from the rest of the property. There are lovely walks that you can take along the river which is literally a few yards away. The cottage was warm, recently renovated and very clean and Chris offered amazing home made scones when we arrived. We would surely come back!” Sarkis and Daphne, Edinburgh

“We found this place last minute. We were supposed to be staying in an apartment near to the Harbour for the Grand National weekend but was cancelled 8 days beforehand. I am so glad we were cancelled as this place is beautiful. The one storey house is immaculate and done to a high specification. The grounds are lovely and you have a view of the river. The owner Chris made us scones on arrival and also eggs from their chickens. He even gave us a lift to the racecourse on the Saturday for the Grand National. There are beautiful walks along the river bank and even though you are next to the owners house, you never see them. The house has its own entrance and private gardens. The village of Alloway is beautiful and you are within walking distance of the Brig O Doon pub if you fancy calling in for a meal and a drink. We will definitely return and stay here again. Highly recommend.” Michelle and Eric, Newcastle.

 “Wow! If only every holiday cottage was as comfortable as your Bothy and what an incredible setting.” David and Tracey, Leicester>

“New, purpose built, holiday home in a surprising and beautiful location. Susan and Chris are great hosts, offering all the help and attention you need, along with the freedom to roam their five acres with the river Doon running through it. The accommodation has plenty of parking. The contemporary interior is clean, practical and comfortable. Central heating, dishwasher and well equipped kitchen help with the comfort. Fast internet and Virgin TV. Patio doors to private garden space with a table and chairs overlooking the river. Fifteen minutes from Prestwick Airport and a few minutes from the coast -exceptional accommodation I could keep typing about.” Ian, Mow Cop

“Totally recommend this hidden gem in a fantastic part of ayrshire. Local to all amenities and tourist attractions. We had a great chilled overnight that chris and susan made us very welcome and at ease. The bothy is amazing full self contained that meets your every need. You feel as if your living with nature as your living in secluded woodland with the wildlife roaming free.” Cheryl, John and doggie Myla, Kilmaurs.

“We loved our stay at the “Bothy”. It was spotlessly clean and had evertything we needed, including very thoughtful touches for not just us, but also the needs of our little dog, making a very pleasant and comfortable stay for us all. The location is so peaceful and tranquil and literally a minutes walk from a stunning riverside walk. Chris and Susan were lovely hosts and had thought of everything, including some delicious warm scones on arrival. We will definitely be back to stay!” Debbie and Dale, Branston
